Hawaii hotel room revenue breaks record in August
The state's number one industry is at an all-time high.
A report released Monday night by Hospitality Advisors LLC shows that Hawaii hotels brought in $339 million in room revenue in the month of August.
It's a record for revenue in a single month and it's $3 million more than last August.
The numbers are part of a record-breaking summer, with a total of $1.42 billion in total room revenue for the season.
The average daily room rate in the islands this summer was $236. Maui had the highest average daily room rate at $288.46.
While the dollars are up, for most islands the occupancy rates are slightly down. Only Kauai saw a slight boost, .03 percent over last year, to 74 percent for the month of August.
